Continuing in the spirit of collaboration, the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens has teamed up with Playwright Jennifer Chase and Director Barbara Colaciello to bring you a unique work that follows an adolescent’s path to discovery and identity. Enjoy live accompaniment to the play with music performed by Jennifer Chase and special guests Holly DeCardenas and Lauren Fincham.
The piece, set in a 1970s Catholic School, centers around a girl played by Eva Matthews. She performs a series of monologues while posing for artist Tony Wood. His contemporary paintings incorporate religious iconography and Mary Magdalene references, combined with Jean Michel inspired graffiti, along with Jim Dine and Roy Lichtenstein Pop Art influences. Universal experiences are uncovered through hilarious encounters with the Sisters of Divine Providence, an unwelcome summer guest, and parents and sibling. On a broader note, the story serves as an observation of the comedy, comfort, conflict, and beauty that can be found in religion and art.
Make sure to reserve your spot for opening night, Friday, January 15th at 7 p.m. or the Sunday Matinee on January 17th at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 and include Museum admission, so make sure to arrive early to enjoy the Museum! (PLEASE NOTE: Friday evening Museum doors open at 6 p.m.)
